A few more Mario Christmas photos!!
Mario checking out his Christmas bounty:
Boyfriend got Mario those nut/honey sticks (I call them crack for rabbits) which were of course a bigger hit than the high-fiber, "educational" toys I got Mario. His head is in the way, but in the photo Mario is digging into the seed stick and pretty much ignoring the other new toys. I am rationing the seed sticks so he doesn't turn into a Christmas porker.
I left the wrapping paper strewn about for an extra day so Mario could enjoy ripping and shredding
We made gingerbread cookies and this is the gingerbread Mario I made this year (with the help of a rabbit-shaped cookie cutter to do the hard part!)
I am going to get busy with updating the blog more frequently. I've been keeping in touch with a lot of bloggers on twitter and I think that has made me lazy with actual blog updating. It is hard to write a post about this or that when I've already tweeted about it. But a lot of you aren't on twitter (Why not?!) so I want to keep up the blogging. I owe lots of posts on lots of things and will start chipping away at that soon.
Sidenote: If you're on twitter, I am "RoadBunner" there, too. If your name is not immediately obvious as to who you are, please send me an email to let me know! Right now I have my tweets as private so I need to okay you and as of now I am more or less just okaying the people I am already familiar with. This may change in the future. I am not being snobby, I just want to keep twitter personal and I feel if you have x,000 people to follow it it is hard to keep up with everyone.
Since someone asked, I got the pattern for the knit bunnies from here. It's a nice pattern because the bunny knits up in one piece. I used small needles (size 4) to get the bunnies to come out smaller. I bought another bunny pattern that had a bit more character, but it is a huge pain when the arms, legs, feet, ears, head, and body are all separate pieces. I hate all that finishing work. In fact, that rabbit never even got stitched up!
